mourdock, who defeated federer in a foreign policy expert richard lugar and i be senatorial -- in the indiana senate for a primary bid the romney campaign said that they did not reflect his views. the women's votes -- obama has been losing some of the women's vote to rney. >> rebalancing, the first debate not that mr. mourdock said anything -- it is obvious what he was thinking. on the other hand, what he was thinking clearly is that rape much less important than preserving a life, and for a lot of women, saying that rape isn't all that important is a very unfortunate thing. romney has disagreed with them, but he has not taken back the ad he's running for mourdock. >> every time you watch the cable this shows now, you see someone from planned parenthood, or another group pro-abortion or so forth. the obama people are running with this ball, colby. will it have legs? >> i think it will have an impact. it calls attention to paul ryan, who shares the same view that there should be no exception for rape, abortion in case of rape or anything else, excepthat ryan's principled posi
debate on foreign policy between president obama and mitt romney today at 12:10 eastern here on c-span. >> this is the downsizing of the charts. you are watching it live. one of 10,000 homes they are trying to get done in the next four years. these are houses that are never coming back. >> one-family every 20 minutes moving out. >> moving out of detroit. >> these houses are disappearing from the landscape. >> just recently, 164 firefighters were laid off as part of the downsizing, effort for mayor bing to get fire -- to get finances under control. detroit must have the highest cases of arson in the country. they were rehired. the money came from the department of homeland security. i cannot want to overstate. that is something you want to think about. the department of homeland security needed to step in to keep detroit as safe as it could be. it could be a lot safer. i have wondered making this film, the auto industry bailout. we have seen the bank bailouts. are we heading into an era of bailout the city. is there such thing of killing out the city? >> tonight at 8:00 p.m. on "q
will be ok, whereas we understand you have to grow the private sector. but on foreign policy, you're right, i will not halls agree with the republican nominee and my job will be i hope to keep us out of additional wars, i hope to help, be part of the solution and bring our troops home from afghanistan, but you know, during the republican primary debate, governor romney said he was ready to come home from afghanistan. i know there's some quibbling here and there on timeline, but to tell you the truth, i don't think there's much daylight between governor romney and president obama on the war. the real difference is on the economy. they're night and day on the economy and not that far apart from coming home from afghanistan. i will try to keep us out of war in syria, keep us out of preemptive war around the world and i will fight for these things and hopefully, i'll be able to convince governor romney campaignfully to come to my direction. within the republican senate caucus, you know, there's probably 10 of us now who are reticent to give the president unlimited authority for war. it doesn't so
that is not a serious discussion -- foreign policy, is foreign policy an issue at all in this election? >> i don't think it has been. i think president obama wants foreign policy to be a slogan. i got bin laden, let's move on. and really does not want to drill into the various areas around the world. and governor romney clearly from the other night does not want foreign policy to be much of an issue. he had plenty of opportunity to go after obama and chose not to do so. he chose to rise above begala -- above at all and can indicate that he can do this, that he has the knowledge and the demeanor to be able to be commander-in- chief. i think governor romney want this to be about the economy. every chance he got in the debate he brought it back to the economy. he brought it back to president obama's record. president obama is looking at the mess around the world and does not want to talk about that. he wants to talk about getting bin laden. as a result, a foreign-policy has taken a back seat. can the president have an impact on the fiscal situation? yes, but he is the sole player, by and large, on national
night, governor romney agreed with the president. but this is a different set of foreign policy views that he had earlier in the campaign. >> and george, that had been an argument that the obama people had kind of shied away from earlier in the campaign. >> well, that's right. right now, that charge is really an accusation that romney can live with. which is don't believe him, as andrew said, because you might like him. i think people say, look, our last impression of him, this is your closing argument, that this is someone that we can live with. i think the obama attack is buttressing the attack. >> agree? >> i don't agree. if you're paying attention to the policy, it has to worry you that he has bunch of stated policies in his platform, if you start unpacking them, there aren't any details and what he's saying now is totally different than what he is saying now. >> don't people normally state that. >> i don't think he flipped to a policy. i think he's basically just, he's got a thing in writing that my policy is "a." you say "a" is my policy, but it's not. >> but the problem is oba

security and foreign affairs. mitt romney, you saw him in the debate on the topic of foreign policy. most of his ideas he was a neat, too, with respect to the president. -- me, too. host: lets' hear from our republican voters in new hampshire. -- let's. caller: it is amazing that are all on the puck for president obama. you want to watch a balanced news station, go to fox news. that is the truth, it really is. president george bush would have been crucified if this went down in libya. for american soldiers, people that were killed. they were just sitting around. same situation. mitt romney does have a plan. he is a businessman. obama has never been run a lemonade stand. let's be honest. guest: with respect to benghazi the president is insisting on getting to the bottom. he has also said we will find those responsible and nature -- make sure they are held responsible. that is what we expect from are responsible president. with respect to the other comments, obviously with respect to fox news, i do not watch fox news, so i cannot really comment on fox other than to say it might be a good id

night, the presidential debate was on foreign policy, andrew's question is about foreign policy. andrew, welcome. please, ask your question. >> [inaudible] >> moderator: okay, thank you. i think we had a mic problem, andrew, but i'll restate the question. andrew said, does current u.s. foreign policy in the middle east undermine our national security? do you agree or disagree? what steps should be taken in foreign policy in the middle east? mr. mourdock? one minute. mourdock: well, our foreign policy is of critical concern, of course, and in the middle east we must always, first and foremost, stand by our great friend, israel, and also we must be making the message that no options can be taken off the table as we look towards a nuclear iran. but to the bigger point of our national security, you know, it was the former head of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mullen, that said the greatest threat to our national security is our own national debt. the fact that we have now spent ourselves into a $16 trillion debt is inexcusable. the fact that we continue to see the debt limit raised and
states, let alone with israel, and more open to iran's message of foreign policy independence. what policy elites here ms., is the islamic republic does not need governments to be more pro-iranian. that's not what they need. they just need these governments to be less pro-american, less pro-israel and more independent. but you often hear in washington in particular that the arab awakening means that iran is going to see. it's only arab allies. or as candidate romney says, evidently without looking at a map, iran's only outlet to the sea. this reflects how it is american elite's, not those sitting in tehran here in denial about basic political trends in the middle east, let alone basic geography. by the islamic republic does not believe that serious bashar al-assad will be overthrown by syrians, the key point is that even a post a sovereign government would not be pro-american or pro-israel. and it may even be less seen on keeping the order with israel quiet. and unless a post assad government were taliban like, serious foreign policy will be just fine for the islamic republic. even
that's going to go back to the same policies that got us into this mess. foreign policy, if you watched the last debate. terrifying if you're a woman. terrifying if you're a gay person. terrifying if -- literally anybody but the top 1%, isn't it? >> it is remarkable to me. it is also remarkable to me that basically other than having a good first debate, romney has done what he's done and been pretty bad since this whole thing started. it is shocking. i still think obama's -- it reminds me of when i was a kid. every time there was a presidential election, i thought i would have to move to canada. my mother would say if nixon gets elected we're moving to canada. every time an election would approach, i would get worried about missing my friends because we were going to move to canada. i'm hoping i won't have to move to canada. >> stephanie: you're probably already packed. you're planning on packing for canada for years. >> i'm looking outside the window of my new york apartment looking at a normal fall day and wa
situation, the president deals of great deal with foreign policy, domestic policy, it makes sense to make sure you will not be so heavily weighted one way or another. for example, in the 2004 election, iraq was a huge issue. that might have been a time where the candidates would want to spend a lot more time on foreign policy. right now, most voters say the primary concern is the economy. so, i think maybe there needs to be a little more flexibility in combat. -- on that. i know candy was thinking about that -- on that. i know can be was thinking about that. >> they are given three debates. we did go back and look at what was covered thoroughly. one of them was education, and at one point the president but did meehan said -- looked at me and said we have not discussed education at all, and i said in my head, sorry, he spent the first 20 minutes of the first debate talking about education. we knew -- remember, the first questions all came from the town hall, so i could not just come off with a question that was not represented in their questions. we knew that syria, iran and israel would b
, and pain. >> chris: from a final debate on foreign policy to round the clock campaigning romney and obama are locked in a furious race to the finish. here is what it was like on the trail. >> the nature of our military has changed. we had these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. >> mr. president, america has not dictated to other nations. we have freed other nations from dictators. >> we witnessed a president who really has no record to run on. >> half the time i didn't know whether governor romney was there to debate barack obama or endorse barack obama. >> high, guys, how are you doing? >> last night and throughout this campaign i laid out a plan for jobs. and middle class security. >> his idea of growing the economy is raising taxes. does any one think raising taxes creates more jobs? >> i have a deal for the president. >> what is the thing with trump and you? it is like me and letterman. what has he got against you here? i don't get it. >> you know, this all dates back to when we were growing up together in kenya. >> yeah. >> and -- >> we are pulling an all nig
to undermine the president's advantage on foreign-policy. but i'm not sure there's much there. i'm not fully versed in everything about benghazi and the attack surrounding it, but it does seem like there's a lot of coverage out there from some of the largest news organizations in america. host: sandy is the october surprise. we'll see how this shakes out. ben in tennessee, independent caller. caller: please don't cut me off. i would like to say the bailouts of gm and chrysler benefited nascar, because they took all the money that the taxpayers gave them and put it back into nascar, because there were still sponsoring it and sponsoring events. also, this president does not carry ou -- does not care about the middle class. we have only had one rates on our social security. my mother got a $30 raise. it's going on four years now. he gets back in, we will not get another one. the only reason he gave this one was because of the election. host: reid wilson? guest: we actually put up an interesting post last week on the hot line by two republicans who took a look at consumer habits, how much they l
, in the final week of this campaign, not only been in a day abandoning their position on foreign policy, trying to wiggle out of their position on women. now they are running away from the bet -- very fundamental ten et upon which this new republican tea party is based. what do they say? i mean this sincerely. it is based on two things -- one, the tax structure continuing to give massive tax cuts to the very wealthy. the five dar trillion tax plan that governor romney ran on a right here in the primaries in florida, with all those republicans, that $5 trillion plan, $1.6 trillion of which goes to making a minimum of $1 million. all this sudden it is gone. as my fourth granddaughter with said, did caspar the friendly ghost steal it? where did it go? it was a center element of the organizing principle, but because outside groups pointed out that the plan would raise middle-class taxes by $2,000 a year, all of a sudden it has vanished. all of a sudden, romney says, do not worry, it will not cost anything. we will eliminate the polls for the wealthy. ladies and gentlemen, for people making over $1
leadership. >> people are asking, do they want to continue with the status quo? foreign policy-wise and domestic-wise. >>gregg: thank you, gentleman, you can get more from the campaign insiders on monday at 10:30 a.m., on fox news, live at www.foxnews.com and you can follow them at twitter. i'm a conservative investor. i invest in what i know. i turned 65 last week. i'm getting married. planning a life. there are risks, sure. but, there's no reward without it. i want to be prepared for the long haul. i see a world bursting with opportunities. india, china, brazil, ishares, small-caps, large-caps, ishares. industrials. low cost. every dollar counts. ishares. income. dividends. bonds. i like bonds. ishares. commodities. diversification. choices. my own ideas. ishares. i want to use the same stuff the big guys use. ishares. 9 out of 10 large, professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. introducing the ishares core, etfs for the heart of your portfolio. taefficient and low cost building blocks to help you keep more of what you earn. call your advisor. visit ishares.com.
its economy back from the brink of disaster and has made a decent fist of foreign policy. this newspaper would stick with the devil it knows and re-elect him. "time magazine" chose not to go the traditional route. instead the weekly published two opinion pieces. each making the case for one of the candidates. also, printed three front covers this week. yes. you can pick up three. one focuses on the superstorm. the other illustrates the presidential race. you can see it here. michael crowley is time's deputy chief -- washington bureau chief and, michael, first of all, it's really interesting. it's very unique. we've seen a lot of mups and magazines go one way or the other. why did "time" decide to go this route with basically two endorsements? >> well, look, you know, voters have been bombarded in the closing weeks of this campaign with negative ads, you know, big bird, benghazi, issues that may be important but are narrow, so here's an opportunity to zoom back, go back to first principles, what are the cases for the two candidates fundamentally, and i think it's really us
. >> mayor, i want to turn to foreign policy really quickly. president obama did an interview with joe and mika that's going to run tomorrow morning in its entirety on "morning joe." this is what he said about the benghazi attacks. take a listen. >> my attitude on this is if we find out that there was a big breakdown and somebody didn't do their job, they'll be held accountable. ultimately as commander in chief i'm responsible. i don't shy away from that responsibility. my number one responsibility is to go after the folks that did this and make sure we get them. i have a pretty good track record in doing that. >> how much has the benghazi attack become a political liability for the president as we head into election day, mayor? >> what you just heard there was a rational commander in chief doing what needs to be done to lead a country. that's what he's been doing for four years. that's how he focused on bin laden and focused on how we need to do positive things around the globe. i'm a mayor, too. i know the moment that something happens, a crime for instance even in my own town, you d
: sure. >> he also made an attempt at the same type of undecided voters. he tried to use foreign policy as his issue. did not work as well. his is more of an attack on mitt romney. let's take a look. >> i'm barak obama and i approve this message. >> wreckless, amateurish. that's when news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled july tour of england, israel and poland. when our u.s. diplomats were attacked, the "new york times" said romney's knee jerk response showed a lack of presidential character. republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> so negative. so negative. that's not what voters want to hear. the amazing thin is that barak obama attacks mitt romney on of all things, libya? the obama campaign has been the most negative campaign over the last three weeks of any campaign in modern history. compare and contrast that with 2008 when he was the most positive. it's one of the reasons why his favorability ratings have go
of atrocities the key focus of his administration's foreign policy. this initiative aimed at civilians and holding perpetrators of atrocities accountable. the focus of this initiative is the area and libya. the other initiative come in the second initiative is the open government or airship, which announced in september 2011 but exacerbated in italy. it was launched by governments and ninth society organizations and has grown to include 57 -- now 57 countries and over 300 commitment organizations reaching more than 2 billion teeple, all in just one year. some other countries have already joined her in the process of joining, which i think is a good thing for many arab countries. the partnership is an international airport to improve government performance, encourage participation and enhanced government participation to people and governments throughout the globe. the urban governor partnership of transparency, citizen, protection and accountability. the highlight of the policy of the united state is the memorandum of understanding for corporations that were assigned to the arab league
of political reforms or two sides of the same coin. this is the syria way. very much foreign policy as well and elected by both sides of the fence. assad did his job well. he constructed an airtight array of family travel, sectarian-based patronage system that produced loyalties and stability. and as for my good friends in damascus wrote last year, he said quote, for the regime its supporters and its allies, syria is an amateur society, a positive with evidence both real and effective and generally blown out of proportion a series of sideshows violent and seditious proclivities that can be contained only by ruthless power structure, unquote ultimately bashar and his followers cannot trust anyone else in syria. is initial strategic vision for international respected and integrated syria became consumed by syrian paradigm of political survival. he was either unwilling or powerless to stop the response to perceived threats. he returned it to me typically authored touring mode of survival your and alawite fortress to protect, the various governments of syria that co-opted over the years to prot
romney's foreign policy and i think it's spore addic that really matters. i see this as an opportunity for the romney campaign to try to distract from what is a very serious endorcement from general powell. >> let's get to another topic here, karen. an article in the "washington post." it's a new one that argues there is a high likelihood president obama could win the electoral vote but not the popular vote, which would be a first for an incumbent. could we survive the hyperpartisanship that that scenario would likely cause? >> i don't know, alex. i mean, i really hope that doesn't happen for so many reasons. i think it would be terrible for the country for so many reasons. we've already become so partisan. i'm actually have to tell you they was skeptical of some of the modelling that we've seen going on. i think a lot of the polls and a lot of the modelling has underestimated the number of latinos and african-american voters. we have 8 million more latino voters, for example, voting in 2012 than we did in 2008. most of the polling models i've seen don't account for those kinds of demo
or steel aspects from it -- emulate their engagement policy or steal aspects from a? >> there is not a perfect model. look at some of the work that is happening in india, for example, to try to attract foreign investment and entrepreneurs. i'm not sure -- it is still very early in terms of the results of their. for the last three decades, the u.s. has had, historically, a very healthy immigration policy, but in the last decade or so we have kind of gone the other way. when you think about it, the number of immigrants that have come in and built amazing companies and created jobs in the hundreds of thousands, we cannot be looking at other markets because there is not a perfect model, but we need to look back of the 1970's in the u.s. as an historical model. we have a lot of immigration. a lot of people came in with science, technology, engineering, mathematics backgrounds. if you look at silicon valley, you see the results. >> i spent seven years of my life painfully on the commission of immigration reform which was chaired by barbara jordan and 1990's. i think the wa
